this camp is over for the big game.
Uh, before we get need anything going, I just want to give a shout out to D.
F s fancy doctors.
Go and check him out, message them with the keyword coaching me code word unwrapped and get some MBA fantasy lineups, uh, free of charge from them.
There's going to kind of prove it to, you know, earn your business and a someone who used a sandal very often.
I can definitely attest to how clutch that is, especially with a daily betting And how much intricacy of thought you need into that.
Um, but I just want to go and jump right into the first match of we have, which was the Tennessee Titans at the Kansas City Chiefs.
Now this was a game where a lot was made up of the Titans and the way that they kind of got to this spot and how they have really transcended above any expectations that the media and just a general non Tennessee Titan fan would have.
You know, they've definitely set themselves up to really kind of build off this strong season.
You know, they they moved on from Marcus Mariota when they did turn the keys.
Teoh right Tannehill to be as successful as he was in this in this season.
And, you know, they did amazing to really kind of get things going.
A examine, Ari man.
Thanks for joining Stream, but And one of things I wanted to, uh, kind of put a light on was just how impressive this season had been for my Grable and the staff in general and how this team was performed, you know, for them to be in the a f C conference Championship.
You know, with the likes of the Chiefs, the Ravens and the Patriots, you know to name a few of the very big powerhouses in the A F.
This year and to, you know, go to Baltimore, go to New England and, you know, ultimately go to Kansas City.
It is just something that, as if you were a fan, if you're just a NFL fan in general, it's something you can hang your hat on.
I know a lot of people were kind of riding the quote unquote Cinderella wave that this team had very special, you know, season overall, a penguin fans were Israel seven.
Thank you for joining Stream, and you know, definitely something that this team could really build on it.
It's encouraging to see, you know, one of another one of the disciples of Bill Belichick performing well as a coach.
But, uh, in this game, you know, Tennessee came out to an early lead.
It almost seemed kind of like the same way the previous two games started against the Patriots and the Ravens, where, you know, they kind of got out early leave.
They're gonna, you know, start eating up the clock.
And they did that very well in the first half.
But there's something about the second quarter for Patrick Mahomes, you know? I mean, he's two touchdowns in that in that second half and then give me a second quarter one by far such an impressive run and such a gutsy run.
You know, he did have that injury back against the Broncos where, you know, he did hurt his knee, and, you know, I'm sure he not completely sure, but I believe he's still wearing a brace or something of support on that knee.
And for him to, you know, make that play, have the awareness to break loose and, you know, try to kind of find the seam in the defense for him to put himself at risk like that.
You know, you're the big money quarterback.
You're the you have the keys of the Hoffmans.
You make this offense go, and for you to put that risk out there, I mean, hey, if you would've gotten hurt, this whole would be a whole nother story.
But because of the outcome, it was just such an amazing play.
I mean, it fired me up to watch that, And I'm not even the Chiefs fan.
So, you know, a lot credit has to be given a, you know, Patrick Mahomes, cause that basically kind of got them back into the game.
They got the lead in the second quarter after being down 10 early in there in the first quarter.
But when you really look at the first half, the cheese from the Times were very much in it.
You know, throughout, you know they still were able to run the ball, you know, not as effectively as you know you would expect, because the way that Derrick Henry has been running the ball in these playoffs, you would have just expect him to just go over 150 plus yards every game.
That wasn't the case in this game, but, you know, for him his final stat line ended up being 19 carries for 69 yards, definitely under the kind of the league of the league expected of, ah, four yards a carry a 3.6.
He did get in the end zone once, but they definitely neutralized him.
Forced Hannah how to throw the ball.
You know, 31 times he had to throw the ball in this game 209 yards to touchdown.
It's not anything.
I would say it would be a knock to this team.
But, you know, I definitely had in my prediction for this game that Tannehill would have to throw in this game.
You know, the offense she did kind of saw a little bit, you know, with it being such a heavy emphasis on Derrick Henry running the ball and that match your problem and what that kind of would create.
So that in itself is impressive by the Chiefs defense.
You know what defense that we've seen, too.
You know, so much struggle in recent years.
You know, it's always been about the offense, never really about the defense.
And, you know, another shining a game for tyrann.
Matthew the Honey Badger.
Just his presence is felt on the field.
Him, among other you know, sign ease that the Chiefs had have really kind of shining through, kind of set them up to, you know, Hey, we have an offense that can go out and score points.
We just got to go out there and give our offense just Hey, we gotta hold him to just less than with the team scores.
Which a normal sounds like a booger reference.
But that's almost the temple mentality you gonna have when you have a strong offense on the other side.
It's like, Hey, we just gotta hold it for as long as we can and it's kind of the same way.
When you have a strong defense and you know you're you're on the offensive side.
It's like a score scored two touchdowns, you know, get get up at least two scores.
Our defense will take care of the rest.
Same way it is in the opposite end.
But you know, this defense is emerging.
I was very impressed with them being able to hold Derrick Henry to under 100 yards under four yards a carry definite, a huge accomplishment based on his recent track record and how he's run the ball recently.
Um, you know, with the Baltimore Ravens, who I thought you know, was a superior run defense, you know, they got they got kind of blindsided by how effective Derrick Henry was against them.
I think the chief's with Frank Clark, you know, kind of putting a target on the defensive sides back with saying that, you know? Hey, we're gonna actually keep Derrick Henry and check.
We're able to back that up.
And that, to me, is such an impressive thing to do when you come back that up.
And he himself had a couple place where he ultimately, you know, had the one of the game ending place and was a part of that strong, stiff run defense that you kept Eric Henry from being the time eater that he was in the previous man.
Uh, the previous two matchups.
But for the Chiefs, I definitely want to also say, you know with Fran Clark saying what he said about Derrick Henry.
Tyree Kill came out and said that himself about said himself, a doozy of a quote saying, No one can cover this offense, you know, we're just No one can cover me, just kind of, you know, saying what we all kind of No one expected Terry kill being such a massive problem.
But he himself also came through C five receptions, 67 yards, two touchdowns.
I mean, he definitely put his money where his mouth was, and you know, back that up himself.
He, you know, Terry kill such a matchup problem.
Travis Kelsey is that you match a problem.
I mean, ultimately, the Tennessee Titans defense is a good unit, but for, you know, a team that has those two weapons, you know as well as Sammy Watkins being like a number two option in that defense I've seen in that offense, you know, they have Mako Hardman, who, when given opportunity and you know a little bit of space can make a lot happen.
And the markets Rob Robinson, who who himself did a very good job of being the possession receiver in the time that Tyree Kill was recovering from a shoulder injury.
A robber, thank you, joining Stream.
And to me, I think that's such a major, just like a plethora of weapons on offense.
And, you know, for that Tennessee Titans defense, it's one of those things where, you know, you did such a great job the last few weeks that, you know, you kind of meat that match of where you plant.
So and, you know, I think the Titan Stevens is some of the defense that's gonna keep on getting better.
Mike Vrabel comes from the New England Patriots organization, you know, being under.
But Bella check and you know, the coordinators that they've had.
So with his mind, I'm sure he's such a cerebral defensive mine, and it's shown with the way this defense has played.
I definitely think that, you know, my Grable and company are gonna have this Tennessee Titans defense kind of be up there next next season.
You know, they have the, you know, a lot of key parts, you know that they they did have ah believe Hargrove.
So they got from Tampa Bay, who has performed very exceptionally well in his short stint here with the Tennessee Titans.
So I think this team is in a great spot, Um, moving forward.
But, you know, Hey, you, David, In the situation that Goliath one in the date of physical life battle and ah, a lot has to be said of Patrick Mahomes and just, you know, twice in two weeks has had to come back from a deficit of 10 or more.
And it's, you know, such an impressive match when you really look at that and just see, you know, the Titans did get the lead back in the fourth quarter and for Kansas City to kind of stay calm composed, you know, they did everything that they needed to do to kind of get um themselves in a position to win.
And you know, we're even running the ball more often than what we've known to see of Andy Reid, who traditionally kind of likes to Passmore in these crucial games.
Ah, he ended up giving 17 carries to Damian Williams, who got 45 yards and a touchdown.
But you know that emphasis on the run game is going to be, I think, something that needs to kind of continue on for this next game for the Super Bowl.
I definitely think it's something that you know needs to be a part of the game plan that does come through.
Um, but ah, lot of credit to this chief's defense.
The holding Derrick Henry 200 100 yards under four yards a carry and toothy 10 in Kansas City Chiefs offense for, you know, struggling, being down early and not allowing themselves to eventually put themselves in a whole.
What a great victory by Patrick Holmes and company is going to be a very fun matchup for this rubble, especially after this news.
When we got this past season, I think, you know, we kind of have a recipe for Ah ah, very intense Super will match up, and that leads me to the next game and our Sunday slate of conference sandwich of games.
We have the Green Bay Packers going to the San Francisco 40 Niners before the game.
This whole week, a clip have been circulating about Aaron Rodgers during the draft.
When he got passed over the summer school, 40 Niners, who went with Alex Smith and he could fell in the draft, ended up going to green Bay and, you know, for, you know, long story short.
Hey, they're going to regret not drafting me.
And it almost kind of seemed like the perfect mix of Oh, man, is it gonna be, You know, Aaron Rodgers, You know, the gun slinger extraordinaire of the last decade going against the future gun slinger of the next upcoming decade.
And you know, it just kind of had that kind of storybook feel to it definite, you know, Definitely something to see with their riders going back to Northern California.
But this game got way out of hand way too early for this package defense who had looked very encouraging these last couple of weeks.
The Darius Smith Preston Smith had been causing constant having in the backfield over the last couple of weeks.
You know, it was a game where I think very Derrick Henry ish.
And you know, that's a big kudos to Derrick Henry for inmate looks in my book.
Kind of, um, acquainting that term at least in my book and for the 40 Niners.
For them to win 37 20 and it Jimmy Garoppolo toe on Lee.
Throw eight passes with an offense that, you know, has Debo Samuel and up and up incoming playmaking wide receiver Emanuel Sanders.
You know, veteran presence in the lineup who could still, you know, have himself a game like he did against the Saints.
You have George Kittle, one of the biggest Mich Matt mismatches, that tight end, you know, next to Travis Kelsey.
And you know, for them to throw eight times and still get the victory.
It's kind of like the same rhetoric of the Tennessee Titans of how they've kind of focused and leaned on their running game.
Now, early on, Tevin Coleman was kind of the guy who was getting the ball.
They have, ah, trio of running backs Matt Brita, where he moster, and Tevin Coleman, who they kind of just cash on hand.
Just kind of goes with the hot hand, a CZ we've seen throughout the season where you know, a couple, a couple of these gentlemen will have a big game kind of get the ball, and then we'll switch over to someone else, kind of keeping the defense's on check to see which running back to focus on and, uh, Coleman, unfortunately went down early with I believe a shoulder injury s So you know, he had 46 series 21 yards and Moster was the beneficiary of the, uh, Carrie share and ended up with 29 carries for 220 yards and four total touchdowns, which you know is very much unheard of, especially nowadays with how the high flying offense is air kind of the emphasis of the NFL.
It's kind of what Pete, what offensive coordinators are trying to do is, you know, it's This league is now kind of rule.
Wai's become a passing league where, you know, a lot of rules kind of help out the offense, especially on B through the air and for the 40 Niners to go with an old school.
Just hey, we're gonna run it down your throat until you stop us was such an impressive sight to see, especially with, you know, with who they're ultimately gonna face unsuitable very much a a, uh, opposite kind of spectrum of types of offenses and types of defense's, which I kind of get into the second half of the stream.
But most your, you know, was beginning the season as the number three guy, really kind of, ah, worked his way up and, you know very much, you know, had himself a conference championship game has, you know, come off been hot as of late in the last couple of weeks, really establishing himself as that guy, eh? Crockett Fan. Thanks for joining Stream.
And you know, they even have Debo Samuel getting involved in the rushing game where he himself had to carry its 42 yards with 32 yards being one of the long.
So, you know, they can get a lot of their players involved on the running game, but so impressive for them to kind of, you know, avoid the Smith.
Uh, I don't know if they're brothers or cousins, but the Smiths from kind of breaking havoc and, you know, owning the clock.
And I think that, to me, is one of the biggest demoralize er's is a team that getting you either run the ball.
We're kind of run a West Coast offense that can, you know, eat up the clock and keep your to the opposing offense on the bench longer and longer, longer.
You know, it's it throws off rhythm, you know, for someone who's played a football before.
I can definitely say, you know, watching a team methodically just running down your defense, It definitely it doesn't take you out of your game.
But, you know, especially in rhythm wise, you know, it does kind of, you know, eat up at the offense and, you know, ah, long drive hurts the defense.
As you know, you're gasping for air near the end, especially if it's like, ah, run emphasis like it was in this game and, you know, the package defense definitely were not able to Ah, hold off this running game and we're down 27 at halftime.
Ended up packers ended up making it a little bit interesting, uh, getting it to 20.
But, you know, ultimately the samba school 40 Niners took care of business, and it was just a It was one of those moments where, after the game, you start to think, and, you know, you gotta wait, kiddo.
Just got his first reception in the second half.
What's going on here? And then, you know, seeing that grapple only through it eight times, and I'm gonna say what I what I said for Ryan Tannehill when he was throwing it under 10 times a game.
And those 1st 2 matchups is Hey, it's not a problem if you're winning, and by that I mean, if you're running the ball, it's effective.
They can't stop it.
I I would have personally gotten more aggressive and, you know, try to throw it here and there.
But, hey, the game plan, it works.
And if if they can't stop the run, didn't just keep on using it, make them adjust.
And once they started to kind of, you know, close that door, you open it up with another, um, with some passing games of play action.
You know what I was saying earlier in my early previous dreams about the Tennessee Titans? I just think that for the 40 Niners, I mean, Garoppolo has shown I believe that three or four times this season that he can win the game throwing the ball.
So I definitely don't think that is something to worry about. The same with.
With what I said about Tannehill, he has one.
I believe two or three games just throwing it.
You know, when it's like a chips are down, you have to make a play you have to make a throw.
You know, these quarterbacks have been able to do it, especially with the benefit of having such a consistent running game.
So for Grapple Oh, a lot of people are gonna make means and jokes about it can grapple. Do it.
He's on a 3 to 4 times in his first full season, so I am not worried.
I'm not gonna sit here and say that he is a top tier quarterback yet, and definitely not the case.
But can you get the job done? Yes, it has.
He proven it before? Yes.
So I think for the 40 Niners, it was just It was the flow of the game.
You go with what's working, That's it.
It's no other story.
Lines of cow **** hand.
Possibly not trusting Garoppolo like, you know, with lead in the game.
No, If they can't stop you running the ball, they just keep on running the ball.
I mean, it's just it's just simple rhetoric at that point.
Ah, but that brings me up to the part.
One ****ysis of the can City Chiefs at going against the same school 40 Niners in Miami February believe second or third, not completely sure right now, but very excited about this matchup.
You know, when you look at Kansas City, they have a high flying, high scoring offense with, you know, a plethora of weapons, and you know they have a defense that, you know, with a couple of signing this past season have really jumped to a more impressive tear.
You know, they've definitely been able to kind of hold their into the bargain more often than not.
And then we have the San Francisco 40 Niners, who have a offense that can run the ball exceptionally well, have a passing attack that you know can be very potent especially, you know, when they have those openings.
And they have a defense that has, in my book bin one or two.
And in just my overall view of how effective the defense could be, you know, it's, you know, when we're looking at the the time frame, you know, it's, you know, between Baltimore and the San Francisco, where I think that they have a defense, I can really alter a game rather than just be, you know, Hey, we're gonna keep going into our job and we're gonna, you know, keep them from scoring points.
No, both of these teams have the ability to force turnovers when I'm talking about the Ravens and the 40 Niners.
But for the 40 Niners, they have been especially since I want to say, like week, eight or nine have been one of the most solid teams on offense and defense, comparatively, comparatively, to the NFL because as much as I think that the chief's defense is apart has improved, I still think that they are the more susceptible unit.
Then you know what any unit on the samples go offense or defense for the cancer T offense.
I think there their performance in the Super Bowl is going to be how this game kind of ah is altered, especially because, you know, we've seen the Chiefs.
You know? Hey, Dave had some great games.
They've had some games where the defense is like, you know, what are they doing? Clearly, we saw against Houston, you know, they got down 21 in the first quarter, you know, a lot of it was special teams play.
It's still there, still very susceptible to giving up a lot of points.
It is what it is.
They're very improve unit, as I've said in the stream, but can still be very susceptible.
So I'm just gonna do a very quick, brief overview of positions and just you know who I give the not to, Um, this is just very brief.
I'll be going into more death in the part to ****ysis next week.
Ah, I definitely wanna take my time.
And I'm definitely not picking 18 yet.
I have a team that I am leaning towards four right now, but, you know, as I kind of go through my progression and kind of break everything down, I'm going toe kind of make my decision once I, you know, look at the bigger picture rather than what I feel.
So in terms of quarterback, can city that Patrick Mahomes, one of the new generation of talent that is really going to take the place of, you know, the Brady's once they retire the Rafa's burgers wth e true breeze, the Peyton Manning's You know that upper actually, on a quarterback.
Then on the other side, we have Jimmy Garoppolo, who has been kind of the heir of the New England dynasty it seemed like because Belichick was so against trading him, uh, area, at least allegedly based on reports.
So you know that there's something of ah X factor with Grapple.
Oh, this is only our first full season seeing him as a full time starter.
You know, he definitely had his opportunity when Brady was suspended.
Ah, a couple seasons ago.
So you know Garoppolo, who has proven to be a very efficient quarterback, has been ableto to kind of come through in this one.
It's going to Kansas City only, obviously, because Patrick Holmes is currently the superior quarterback can make all the throws, is able to make plays with, uh, with his feet as well.
He, you know, himself has been able to, you know, will his team to victory himself, not saying that Grapple hasn't done that.
But, you know, obviously from the homes has been able to do it and exciting fashion the past two weeks in clutch moments.
You know when the pressure's on, so that that is, that not is going to them.
Then for the running back position, we have the can City Chiefs who on their roster of Damian Williams, Darryl Williams, Darwin Thompson and about LaShawn McCoy, which LaShawn McCoy was inactive.
Or maybe he's kind of fallen out of.
You know what fits in that offense? Definitely be something interesting to see if he's gonna play in Super Bowl if they're gonna have it.
Any sort of role for him been diminished the last couple of weeks.
So I don't know about that.
Damian Williams seems to be their number one guy.
Uh, he has shown in spurts of being able to be a great receiving back.
Can run the ball here and there.
Not a very consistent running back yet.
This was his first season as a full time starter or the opportunity to be a full time starter.
And he actually got hurt.
Banged up, Missed a lot of time.
So we're unsure about that.
But Damian Williams and the other running backs for the chief we all know, as I've stated in a lot of my streams, that three headed monster of, um, Matt Brita, Um, where he Moster and Tevin Coleman.
So I'm going to give them out on that one to the 40 Niners, you know, most sure of himself had had himself a hell of a game against the, um, the Green Bay Packers, you know, was able to run the ball, but all these running backs could do that.
Kevin Coleman has had himself a game.
We scored four touchdowns that believe Matt Morita has been able to gash defense's himself as well.
So you know they have three different running backs that, you know, whoever has the hot hand can take that defense.
I can't think that defense, you know, to town and, uh, definitely have themselves a game.
And then we go to the wide receivers.
Well, the chief's we have Tyree kill one of the game's most dynamic players.
We have Marcus Robinson, who you know, has proven to be a very, you know, good possession receiver.
We have Michael Hardman, which before the season I kind of had him as like a Tyreek Hill prototype.
You know, a different version of that, but that same style of speed and emphasis of putting him in space and giving them the opportunity to make plays camera.
We can't forget about the number two receiver Sammy Watkins, who himself had a 60 yard touchdown and you know, when given the opportunity can per can produce at an elite level, but definitely not an elite receiver down the wide receivers for the 40 Niners, we have Emmanuel Sanders, veteran presence at wide receiver for them.
They traded for the hit for him, believe in the 3rd 4th week traded for him in the third or fourth week.
Um, it has been a great veteran presence for them, you know, has been able to have himself big games, but he's not that deep threat that he was before then.
We have Debo Samuel, one of the most dynamic young rookie receivers, in my opinion.
Ah, in in terms of, ah, best receiver and I definitely would put it in the conversation of decay.
Metcalf, maybe Agent Brown in just kind of.
I do think Metcalf is probably the better receiver in that regard in this season's crop.
But I think dear Oh, Sammy was the most dynamic and has the biggest opportunity to kind of ah flew himself into a ah different style wide receiver that can run the ball, do a lot of different things on offense, a very versatile option.
Um, and this one I got to give it to the chief's Tyree kill, um, Sammy Watkins are, I think, a more threatening package of receivers And then, you know, with Nicole Hardman, uh, and Marcus Robinson.
I mean, they're definitely stacked with receivers that can make plays.
And definitely forgot to say, Kevin, born for the 40 Niners, who has been a very clutch receiver for them, been able to get open and key points of the game, make big reception.
So definitely don't wanna not mention him.
And then we go to tight end, which is probably the to the two of the top tight ends in the league.
I believe right now, which is Travis Kelsey.
We all know his repertoire.
How good of, ah, mismatching he is for the offense.
And then we have George Kiddo, who has become that mismatch that next T.
Rowe has become, has joined that that tear of tight end and you know, his run blocking ability is immaculate.
I mean, he enjoys it, you know, he he's having a lot of fun out there with that four tight end.
I do give it to Travis Kelsey by a smidge, and that's only because Travis Kelsey is such a key component of that offense, which, you know, I know that today he didn't really have many, you know, looks and receptions as he doesn't in typical games.
But that offense is really predicated on Travis Kelsey, you know, kind of being the mismatch kind of, you know, Oh, diverting attention in some form or fashion.
Um, I I only give that to to Kelsey because he's just so much more of all in the passing game, Kiddo is involved in the passing game heavily for the 40 Niners.
But as you saw today running the ball, his his usage as a run blocker is so important at himself in his run blocking.
But overall in tight ends, I'm gonna give the nod to Kelsey.
But it's bias, Midge.
I could have easily picked Kittel, and I would be okay with the decision.
I'm sure a lot of you ah, you know, might have your side on that tight end situation.
But Travis Kelsey is just such a talent.
Such a mismatch.
I think he is the he has that edge when it comes to kid, at least for now.
In this season offensive line, I looked at the Pff rankings, the 40 Niners or above the cancer.
The Chiefs, Um, and I just think that offensive line with the way they run the ball, the way they've protected grapple Oh, I just think they have, ah, more cohesive unit.
Then I would say the chief's chiefs, you know, or right there with them, probably like a slightly below them in terms of, you know, their performance.
There may be a set that might prove that, but just on my initial research, I'm going with the 40 Niners Now.
This next one is the front seven.
Those linebackers, defensive ends, the guys on the line.
You know, we do have the of presence and a force on the defensive line.
He himself is a big presence on the line.
They have, ah, very good unit for the Chiefs and then for the 40 Niners, you know they have Nick Bosa, DeForest Buckner.
Eric Arms said that, you know, is comes in there and plays as well.
You know, Solomon Tom, it's not sure how much play he gets because I know he was a big draft pick early on, but linebacker Corps.
I think that's what puts me slightly above with San Francisco.
Kwon Alexander has come back has, you know, seamlessly kind of gotten back into rhythm with them.
What everybody expected of him, you know, being on the field.
He missed the entirety of the regular season and his performance, Uh, number 57.
I'm going blanking on his name, but he has really emerged as a strong linebacker for them.
I believe it's Borland.
Oh, no, let me just double check.
But, you know, I give.
I give the not over to them because they just think in terms of consistent pressure in terms of, you know, the defensive front seven ability to, you know, close out on runners.
I think that ultimately is what kind of pushed me to the 40 Niners.
Their defense, like I said earlier, has just been the more consistent unit.
And let me see it's Dre Greenlaw that that linebacker and you see that linebacker in particular, I've been very impressed with his ability to, you know, lay down the hits, and it's just to me, ultimately is what I think is it's going to be the difference, especially when it comes to a Super Bowl is how your other role players play.
And I think he's a part of that that, you know, unknown list of players.
I think he could make a big play that either force a fumble.
You know, put the pressure on one, and he's just such a great line background reading the play.
He's just always around the ball.
At least it has been for the last couple of weeks that I've been looking at tape.
I think that's what I'm gonna ultimately give the nod to them.
Linebackers can close out.
Defensive lineman can really put a lot of pressure on the quarterback.
You know, Nick bows at himself, is flat, outplayed above his pay grade already as a rookie, he's by far past any expectations a majority of people would have.
I don't think anybody had on performing that well unless they were being crazily optimistic.
But, you know, kudos to, um, the scouts and draft committee for the 40 Niners.
They definite did a hell of a job on this draft on then.
We have secondary, which, with Kansas City.
Um you know, we obviously have tired.
Matthew. I'm a huge fan of his.
I think he's definitely been a huge component of this defense to kind of take them to that next step.
You know, his ability to dissect plays and kind of, Ah, you know, if you washed any of the clips on Twitter where he what kind of think he was in a blitz, then fell back in his own and then kind of red, red, the quarterback's eyes and kind of, you know, closed out.
And to me, I think that is just such a great asset to your defense.
You know, I'm a Steelers fan.
So you know, watching Troy Polamalu in the early two thousands, you know, in the 2000 just kind of put his presence on the field and, you know, being ableto affect the game in different aspects.
I think, is such a a, uh, huge Um, sorry about that.
A huge game changer, especially when it comes to you know, when it comes time to make a play, dissect the play and being ableto kind of, you know, you needed three and out.
Who do you expect to kind of be the catalyst? That is what he is.
And you know, the EPA shot Brylin.
You know Morris Claiborne, do you? No.
No, he didn't play Kendall Fuller.
You know, they they have, ah, good repertoire of secondary.
But I think Tyr nephew is, in my opinion, the quarter, the defensive back of emphasis for them.
Then we go for the Santa School 40 Niners who, you know, have Richard Sherman, which that right there is, You know, one of the biggest names in the NFL, One of the more recognizable corners, the corners that have had a longevity in this league.
Then we have, you know, they have mostly at corner.
Let's see, you know, Richard Sherman.
They have Jimmy Ward and they have Whiskey Tart.
And ultimately, I'm gonna give that now over to the 40 Niners.
I think, overall, their secondary has performed just more consistently all throughout the season.
They've been a team that can really, you know, suffocate a receiver and kind of, you know, shut him out.
They did a hell of a job this week against the Davante Adams, who is one of the league's top 15 receivers.
You know, nine receptions for 138 yards.
Yes, they did give up a lot on that.
But a lot of that was later on in garbage time.
You know, for them to kind of close out on everybody else.
You know Jimmy Graham for 7 59 yards, Lazara.
Three receptions for 36 yards.
You know, they kind of kept it just to him.
Thio Adams, who you know, did beat them, you know, for nine reception 108 yards.
That's a big game.
But, you know, they ultimately did keep him out of the end zone.
The ultimately kept this offense from really being such an effective factor.
I think that in itself for the secondary is what I think puts him above at least talent wise and potential wise to be a factor in this upcoming game and then for the special teams.
You know, the cheese that bunker as a kicker for manners.
Have Robbie cold for returners.
Niners have rickets.
I believe it's Rick James.
Let me just double check for the 40 Niners, Richie James Jr and then for the Chiefs.
They have I believe McColl Hardman is the return man for the Chiefs.
I'm gonna give this non that's not slightly over to Raymond Burger Raymond.
Okay, Chiefs Waas Terry kill Marco Hardman record.
So I'm gonna give this not slightly over to the Chiefs.
I think there were tournament have way more of a dynamic presence for them and, you know, in Super Bowl Ah, lot of the game changing place can sometimes, you know, kind of spur from a big special teams play.
I think the Chiefs have that slight edge over them.
And if we look at this, it's a 44 split for me when it in terms of, you know, breaking down positions.
You know, offensively, you know, I definitely leaned a little bit more to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Defensively, I really in heavily over the 40 Niners falls definitely in line with what happened saying all season.
Definitely things going to be a big matchup.
Strong defense is a strong offense and a potent offense against the defense that has the ability to make it has the ability to kind of come up when the their team needs in the most.
So it's definitely going to be an interesting matchup.
